“I cannot recall a book that has excited me more than Transforming Places. This work is a major step forward in the study of social change, our understanding of ‘free spaces,’ and local resistance – how people get power and how they can use it to get more.”

— Richard A. Couto, editor of Political and Civic Leadership: A Reference Handbook
